ROBIN VENTURA RUMORS

Ventura’s Grand Slam Single Endures

One of the players I most enjoyed covering was Robin Ventura for those two years he played for the Yankees.

White Sox outlast Royals in record-setting game

White Sox manager Robin Ventura was still in a joking mood -- even after managing a nine-inning game that lasted 4 hours, 16 minutes Tuesday night at Kauffman Stadium. “I didn’t even notice,” Ventura joked of the game’s length. “I thought it was nice and crisp.” It probably helped Ventura’s mood that the Sox pulled off a 7-5 victory in a game in which 15 different...
